Studebaker US6 "Frozen In Time" (Engine Overhaul)
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 was brought back to life and
driven 75 miles back to civilization after being abandoned in the remote
Alaskan wilderness and "frozen in time" for two decades. Now in June 2013
the old war horse is getting some much needed TLC and a new lease on life.
This truck was built on May 23, 1945 -the day Himmler commits suicide.

The first car ever running live! The Benz Motorwagen (1885)
This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running.
After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873,
Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen
(or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first
purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to
be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the
Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German
patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.
1909 Cadillac First Start in 79 Years
This 1909 Cadillac was stripped down into a speed car, raced and then
parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The
restoration was put on hold for many years and then re-started a few years
ago. After multple checks of the ignition and timing we finally achieved
the first start on July 28, 2012. There is still more to do to tune the
engine and sort it out for driving later this year.
The spray on the first try happened when we left the primer cups open. It
runs better with them closed.
And the owner did make it a bit easier by adding an electric starter to the

How to Start a Yamaha after it's been left for years in the garden
Here we have a 1985 Yamaha FZ750. It is the very rare 2GH model as ridden
by Eddie Lawson in the 1986 Daytona 200 to victory with full livery by Troy
Lee Designs. Sadly it has been left for years outside in a garden with the
sea air/rain on it with nothing but a sheet over it. I have removed the
petrol tank to access the fuel supply and have repaired some of the faulty
wiring which probably was the cause of this superbikes demise. I am now
going to completely strip the bike down and restore her to her former

bear this in mind.

Luke Rizzuto is a man on a mission. He plans to circumnavigate the globe in
his 1918 Chevy but he's going to need more than a V-8 engine and a smile to
do it. He and his crew are seeking sponsorship.

Benz tricycle starting
A Benz tricycle being started although on the day I filmed this it was
being stubborn and did start eventualy.
It produces a maximum of 0.75HP at about 400RPM running on floor polish.
This polish/cleaner has naptha oil in it and this is what it would have run
on when first built in 1886. Think of it as a stationary engine on wheels
with a park bench on top!
1910 Thomas Flyer Race Car
This 1910 Thomas Flyer has been restored to run the next Great Race. The
car is now painted and made to look like the original 1907 car that won the
very first Great Race from New York to Paris. The huge 6 cylinder car
underwent a huge restoration to make the 2008 Great Race, before the race
was postponed due to complications with the passage through China. The car
is now complete, but this video was shot as soon as the car was roadworthy
and before it was torn down for final paint and assembly. It was a special
day to see this road veteran again blasting around town. These cars are
awesome and you forget just how impressive they were until you see this
beast roar to life and take to the highways. Time has change the styling of
automobiles, but this car is absolutely timeless!
